Reviewed by Sally Kruger aka Readingjunky for

Lisa Greenwald has a nice combination of things going on in her debut novel MY LIFE IN PINK & GREEN. Put together green living to save the earth, the trials and tribulations of being a 7th-grade girl, and the financial stress of running a family business, and you have a real page-turner.

Lucy will be the third generation owner of a family pharmacy - that is if her mother and grandmother can keep the store going against the competition of large chains and consumers only looking for one-stop shopping options. She hears their constant arguments about which direction is best for the business her grandfather started years ago.

Lucys mothers objections are that the store is stuck in the 80s, while her mother, Lucys grandmother, says her own daughter is the downfall of the business because of her poor money management skills. All Lucy knows is that she doesnt want to lose the family business, and she thinks she just might have the answer.

Being a 7th-grader is also a challenge for Lucy. Her older sister is away at college, but thanks to Claudia, at least Lucy knows how to look her best, and with the help of good grooming she maintains a high level of self-confidence in the face of middle school stress. She has always been interested in make-up, and growing up in the pharmacy with its make-up aisle so easily accessible, she has developed a certain knack for making people look their best.

When people begin realizing her talent, she finds herself running a makeover business that is bringing in needed cash for the store.

In an effort to boost her friend Sunnys confidence with boys, Lucy joins the schools Earth Club. Membership in the club revives Lucys interest in recycling and promoting some of the more nature-friendly make-up products she uses with her customers. When an afternoon of research for the club causes Lucy to stumble across a city grant offering some major money help for local businesses who go green, she believes she has truly found the way to save the family business.

MY LIFE IN PINK & GREEN grabbed my attention right from the start. Lucy is portrayed as a fun, upbeat 7th-grader not afraid to test out her innovative ideas. The addition of the financial stress in the family business brings this story into the here and now of our economic woes and will help hold the interest of readers dealing with their own tough times. By adding humor and a bit of young romance, Lisa Greenwald has really hit the mark with this novel.

I look forward to reading what I hope will be a long line of her YA work.

What are you working on?

I have had pink living room furniture since the mid 90s. I ignore it for most of the year, but then I love it in December because it matches my Christmas ornaments haha. If I ever get rid of the furniture, the Christmas ornaments will have to go too because they have become such a set. I tend towards soft greens and blues in my homes, but when I visited a Showcase Home in my area, the most beautiful room was pink. It had very soft pink walls with hints of silver. I just sat in that room for such a long time thinking how happy anyone more likely a woman would be to have such a peaceful retreat to go to.
